Taxonomy hacked? (3 posts)

    I've updated to version 3.9.1 for security reasons, but I might be too late - my blog now contains several spammy pages that I can't find in the back end. They are in the format


    Which is, I think a taxonomy id? There doesn't seem to be much online about a hack taking this form, so I'd like to ask whether anyone else has seen this type of spam hack in the wild and what a 'tid' even is, and hopefully might have some advice as to what I can do to get ris of this spam from my site?

    Thanks in advance!

    That "tid" is just variable name the malware is using for the GET requests. Please follow the steps esmi mentioned and if you'll have still problems, just let us know :)
